If you hardwire together the two wires that go to the power switch, it'll turn on as soon as power is applied, and stay on until you unplug it.
If you want to run dual bioses, you need a full modchip with dual bios functionality. A TSOP flash will only boot one bios at a time. You'd have to re-flash to get another bios.
You can't remove the hdd check or DVD check with a softmod. Those are done in the bios, so you'll need to flash a custom bios for that fuctionality.
I believe that all custom bioses remove the hdd check, and most have the option to skip the DVD check. I suggest iND-BIOS 5003 if you're not sure which you want, and you still want to play xbox games.
Lastly, I heavily recommend that you do a lot of research. The info on all this is scattered around, very difficult to find, and has evolved a lot over the years. Without doing a lot of research, it's almost certain that you will screw something up and turn your xbox into a paperweight.
I have successfully flashed my Xbox with iND-BIOS 5003, but I have a problem.
My Xbox was soft modded and now when it boots, it goes to a black screen I can still boot games and I have ftp access with one of my Mechassault saves, how do I go about fixing this?
I plan on installing an 80gb hard drive (Thats the largest I have, and it doesn't need to be locked.
Should I just create a new hard drive?
If so, what files do I put on there?
I know next to nothing about how mod chips and bios work, I'm unsure what I need to do, before I always have used soft mods.
I figured it out!
